    man them bring back memories , the poor fish never knew what was coming when I showed up as kid with one in my hand , just about every freshwater fish species and a bunch of saltwater fish too , met their makers .
    man they were tough smooth reels , drags sang nicely and the balance and durability was unsurpassed back in the day .
    congrats to ya sir
